Leparoux to Ride at Keeneland

Jockey Julien Leparoux

Julien Leparoux will move his tack from Santa Anita to ride regularly at Keeneland when the Lexington, Ky. meet starts on April 5, agent Joe Ferrer said Sunday morning.

“I will handle his business,” said Ferrer, also the representative of Santa Anita riding leader Rafael Bejarano, who through Saturday held a 61-42 bulge over second-place Edwin Maldonado, winner of three races Saturday.

Through 50 days of Santa Anita’s 71-day meet, two-time Eclipse award winner Leparoux had 25 wins, 25 seconds, 14 thirds and purse earnings of $1,477,738.

Keeneland’s meet ends April 26, after which the 29-year-old Leparoux will head to Churchill Downs for the Kentucky Derby on May 4.

What makes him think he will have a mount in the Derby? Perhaps he is heading "to Churchill Downs for the Kentucky Derby" as a fan. As a racehorse owner, I would never put this guy on my horse in a big spot on the dirt.
Over rated
Leparoux only wins on horses that would win even if you had a crash dummy strapped to em
Leparoux is, at best, a competent rider and horses win races.
